CELEBRATE GLOBAL RUNNING DAY WITH THESE RUNNING WORKOUTS

It's the first Wednesday in June, do you know what that means? It's global running day! I'm not sure when it started, but it seems over the last couple of years there has been an influx of these new made-up internet-invented holidays. You've probably seen it on social media: It's national sibling day or national dog day. Last week hosted both national wine day and national donut day.

Today is my favorite pretend holiday of them all, Global Running Day! There should be some sort of rule that you are not allowed to celebrate national donut day unless you also celebrate the global running day. Amiright?

WHAT IS GLOBAL RUNNING DAY?

Global Running Day is a worldwide celebration of running that encourages everyone to get moving. It doesn’t matter how fast you run or how far you go—what’s important is that you take part, and how you do it is up to you. Run a lap around your block, take your dog for a long walk, or call your friends for a pick-up game in the park. The important thing is that you have fun being active—and you inspire others to join you.

HOW DO I CELEBRATE GLOBAL RUNNING DAY?

If you visit the Global Running Day site you can pledge to run, download a customizable bib and badge to share with the world (aka social media). Tag me on Instagram so I can cheer you on today!

So how do we celebrate on the global running day? We run! For this week's "workout Wednesday" it only seemed appropriate that I share some of my favorite running workouts. 

CELEBRATE GLOBAL RUNNING DAY WITH THESE RUNNING WORKOUTS

Lace up your running shoes, grab a buddy and go for a run. Whether it's around the track or around the block, we're all runners today. Because tomorrow is (probably) national hug a trainer day, I'll be over here waiting for my free hugs.
